Sun King Aralia is also called Golden Japanese Spikenard. This large growing plant can reach sizes of up to three feet. The Golden yellow foliage stands out among other perennials and performs best in part shade. In the summer it will produce small white flowers that attract pollinators and will eventually form dark purple nonedible berries.
